Seamlessly Synchronize Your Notes with Easy Cloud Notes
Ever since Google Keep was released some time ago, it has become an everyday staple for many users. And who’s to blame them. The application is simple, east-to-use, and has an aesthetic and efficient interface. However, one potential complaint that some may have with Keep is that it relies on Google’s cloud to store its notes and allow you to access them across devices. While Google is widely considered to be the best and the most reliable personal cloud solution, some may prefer to use a different service.
This is where XDA Recognized Developer Goddchen comes in. He created an app called Easy Cloud Notes. And as it name implies, it allows you to take cloud notes rather easily. Currently, it supports various note types, as described by developer:
It supports the common note types:
- Text notes
- Photo notes
- Audio notes
- Drawings (coming soon)
Sounds a bit like Google Keep, right? Well since we like having choice, that’s where these apps diverge. So what kind of cloud services does Easy Cloud Notes support? Currently, the supported cloud services include the following:
- Google Drive
While I assume that most who use this app will end up using Google Drive for the back end, it’s still quite nice to be given choice. After all, that’s part of the reason we love Android, right? On top of the diverse note types and user-selectable cloud backup solutions, the app’s interface is well designed, as seen in the developer’s other apps that we’ve featured in the past.
If that’s gotten you excited, you can go ahead and give it a shot by heading over to the application thread.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
